So it looks like many of us will be forced to stay at home, either through ‘self isolating’ as it’s just been confirmed that schools in the UK will close from Friday ‘until further notice’.
There’s no getting away from the fact that its going to be challenging but there are ways you can stay connected with friends, family, loved ones and (if you really want to!) work colleagues beyond your four walls.
I’m going to run through some of the easier to use (and free) video conference tools so the kids can still have ‘virtual playdates’ and see their friends in a group call.

Zoom allows for simple, easy setup meetings or regular meetings in your personal meeting room. Quickly create and share a private meeting link with an individual or group.
Good web interface, takes 48 hours to setup whereas Zoom is instant.
I’ve always found Skype a little ‘buggy’ and not as smooth as other interfaces. Easy to use and simple to setup.
Good for smaller groups. Pretty easy and smooth to run.
Google Hangouts is a simple way to connect with Google contacts. But is limited to Google contacts.
